Meet Your Orthodontist in Santa Rosa
Meet Dr. Rael Bernstein
As an orthodontic patient himself, Dr. Bernstein realized the life changing benefits of a confident new smile. His own orthodontist helped to teach him the important life lesson that the more effort he put into an endeavor (wearing his headgear) the more he would get out of it. Motivated by this lesson and a new confident smile, a young Dr B. started making more friends, and putting in the additional effort to achieve higher grades and doing better at sports. Helping to build someone’s confidence and sharing the lesson he learned during his treatment as a child, is what inspired him to become an orthodontist.
Dr. Bernstein was born and raised in South Africa and attended the prestigious Wits Dental School finishing top of his class, while also representing his university and country in sports. He then completed his orthodontic specialty residency at the State University of New York, Buffalo, being awarded the prize for the best-treated orthodontic case in his residency. Following his residency, he accepted a fellowship position at the University where he became a clinical assistant professor in the orthodontic department. Dr. Bernstein continues to teach at many Universities to this day, having lectured at SUNY Buffalo, University of the Pacific San Francisco, and UCLA where he is currently on faculty. He also lectures at seminars and conferences both regionally and nationally and has hosted many in office courses for residents and orthodontists.
Dr. Bernstein is considered an innovator and visionary in the orthodontic field. He developed and patented the Berni-Brace which is used world wide for Phase1 early treatment on kids. He has been practicing orthodontics for over 25 years.
Dr. Bernstein is married to his bride Debbie, also a dental specialist, and they have 2 teenage daughters. They love spending time as a family, travelling and adventuring. Dr. Bernstein enjoys daily early morning workouts, and also likes to skiing on snow and water, playing golf, reading and is an avid sports fans.
WHY CHOOSE AN ORTHODONTIC SPECIALIST?
Every dentist has completed a minimum of seven years of college education and is fully licensed to perform dental procedures.
Many dentists are now performing orthodontic treatment on patients, sometimes at a lower price.
But, what you may not realize is an orthodontist has two to three additional years of education and more than 3,000 additional hours of training focused specifically on orthodontics.
When you think about what’s involved with orthodontic treatment, it makes sense to trust a specialist.
Orthodontics involves not just straightening teeth, but treating underlying conditions of the jaw and facial irregularities. Orthodontics is partly an art form!
Just as you would see a cardiologist for a heart condition, you should leave your orthodontic treatment to a specialist.

Santa Rosa Braces
People everywhere around Santa Rosa know traditional braces as one of the strongest and most efficient orthodontic tools to straighten teeth and fix a smile. Metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
Our orthodontists at Bernstein Orthodontics create gentle pressure using brackets, wires, and bands that work together to slowly straighten your teeth. Santa Rosa braces are an excellent choice for correcting several tooth issues, from simple to complex.
Because they can sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, braces may reduce your total time in braces.
The industry has come a long way regarding orthodontic technology, and we're excited to offer the latest and greatest self-ligating braces to our patients at Bernstein Orthodontics.
Our Pitts 21 self-ligating braces are a revolutionary treatment option that provides greater comfort, faster results, and fewer appointments. Sounds great, right? These braces are unique because it uses light, low-friction force to move your teeth into place with greater control and better results.
Plus, traditional braces don't require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Santa Rosa braces an affordable option for budget-conscious orthodontic patients around Santa Rosa.
Santa Rosa Invisalign
Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment. Many people around Santa Rosa already know about this treatment option as an alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners come in a comfortable plastic that a doctor designs to fit snugly over a patient's teeth. The patient swaps out these see-through aligner trays every one to two weeks, with the next in the series to keep the aligning teeth.
Patients should wear clear aligners 20-22 hours each day throughout treatment.
The Invisalign system only works if patients follow these recommended guidelines, so patient compliance is critical to success. Neglecting to wear the aligners as directed can halt the results and add time to the total length of orthodontic treatment.
